    A multicoloured array of peppercorns and chillies ground together adds fire to these deep-fried Spanish shrimp scented with ginger and garlic.

      I was in two minds about this one, 4 stars or 5... in the end it gets 4 stars because the mix of fresh ginger, pepper, cilantro/coriander and garlic were just devine and at certain points the chili powder/cayenne were a little too intrusive for our tastes. I put ours into bowls and the seasoning mix went a little to the bottom of the bowl so although it was mixed well at first there was a big difference in flavour of the shrimp at the top and the bottom. I would definiately make this again but with less chili powder. Please see my rating system: 4 excellent stars for a recipe that I will be delighted to tweek to make into a 5 star one for our tastes. Thanks!
